Diet is a four letter word. Fuel is a good way to look at food. Do you want the engine running on crap or on the good stuff?
But, changes I make to my eating habits have to be motivated by something other than what’s good for me, because many a time I have looked at something and thought “That’s not good for me” and then ate it. I’m not sure I have found a hundred percent motivation to eat better. It’s really just a matter of doing it but I am not all the way there yet.
Two things I have noticed in my habits - meat looks REALLY good now. When I go to the cafeteria, I am not trolling the cookie aisle or the dessert refrigerator. Well, sometimes I do drool over the fruit tarts.
I’m trolling for protein. It’s not even a question any more it’s just what I crave. The meals come with side dishes. I often choose a starchy side and then eat maybe 2 or three bites and toss the rest after I finish the meat. Last week I asked for an extra meat portion! LOL. Cost me 5 bucks extra. Won’t be doing that again.
Next step in my plan is to start choosing the green veggies instead of the carbs.
